Smoke and Soot Cleanup

8/2/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot are invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allow us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and Soot Facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Denver West will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We treat our customers with empathy, respect, and your property with care.

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe

  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

How To Clean Sewage Backup in Your Home

7/20/2022 (Permalink)

A sewer backup can lead to the spread of bacteria and viruses in your home. The problem should be addressed as soon as possible. There are some steps you can take to limit the spread of the contamination. They include:

  • Turning off running water
  • Move un-contaminated objects to dry, clean areas
  • Open windows and doors to speed up the drying process and limit the growth of mold
  • Discard contaminated curtains, carpeting, and upholstered furniture

Tips for Cleaning Sewage Backup in Your Bathtub

If you see a small bathtub backup, you may be able to clean the spill yourself. Before you start, make sure you have the necessary equipment. Wear protective equipment like goggles, coveralls, rubber gloves, and boots. Do not let your bare skin touch the sewage. You should also avoid touching your nose, ears, eyes, or any open cuts.

Once you are properly protected from the sewer backup, and after the contaminated items have been taken out of the bathroom, you can start removing the standing water. Discard any solid waste and apply an initial disinfectant spray to the affected area. You should then clean all the surfaces with household detergent to remove any additional dirt and contamination. Next, dry the area with a combination of dehumidifiers and portable fans. Finally, disinfect the area a second time by using a bacteria-killing bleach.

When To Call an Expert

If the contaminated area is large, you should contact a professional cleanup company, like SERVPRO of Denver West. Experts should also be brought in if your home’s HVAC system has been contaminated, or if the sewage has been in place for more than 24 hours.

While you may be able to handle a small sewer backup on your own, emergency restoration specialists will know how to clean up a bigger area quickly and safely. SERVPRO of Denver West can also dry any belongings that were damaged by the flooding. 

To recap you should contact a service professional unless the spill is limited to a tiny section of your bathroom floor, if an entire area or HVAC system is contaminated call SERVPRO of Denver West at 303-576-6868.

Does Your Home Have A Mold Problem?

7/6/2022 (Permalink)

Mold Spores on a wall Mold Spores

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

How Do I Know If My Water Heater Needs Maintenance in Englewood?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

A water heater has a leaking drip pan. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver!

Water heaters require routine professional maintenance to keep them operating optimally. Our local team in Denver West offers these water heater maintenance tips for Evansville from the National Board of Pressure Vessel Inspectors:

Use a qualified service professional for the following:

  • Burners should be cleaned once a year for gas and oil-fired water heaters. Have the service professional inspect flues and vents for cracks or loose connections that could leak deadly exhaust gases.
     
  • Have a qualified plumber replace your anode rod once every two to five years
     
  • The service life of a temperature and pressure (T & P) valve is usually three years. Even if a T & P valve looks fine from the outside, manufacturers recommend they be removed and visually inspected for accumulations of corrosion deposits
  • Call a qualified plumber if your water tank is leaking
    • If the T & P valve is discharging water or steam, the ONLY safe intervention is to remove the heat source by cutting off its fuel, if you can. For an electric heater, trip the circuit breaker; for a gas heater, shut off the gas.
    • If your water heater overheats, call a qualified plumber and allow the water heater to cool naturally. Never try to relieve the pressure yourself. Never add cool water to the tank, and never try to cool it by spraying it with a hose.

Downed Tree in Parker?

A tree is uprooted after a storm. Our technicians are on call 24-hours a day in Denver.

Our team in Denver West has been responding to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Parker for many years. Our fast emergency response time combined with a highly trained team means that your storm damage will be repaired quickly and efficiently. Fallen trees are an example of storm damage you may experience. The Colorado State Forest Service offers this advice for keeping trees healthy and assessing storm damage:

  • Are major limbs broken? If larger limbs are broken, it will be harder for the tree to recover from the damage. When large limbs are broken or hanging, or when high climbing or overhead chainsaw work is needed, it’s best to hire or consult a professional.
  • Don’t top your trees! When trees are topped, all of their branches are cut back to stubs on the mistaken assumption that reducing the length of branches will help avoid breakage in future storms. While storm damage may not always allow for ideal pruning cuts, professional arborists say that topping is one of the worst things you can do to your trees.

Call Us!

When your commercial business or home in Parker has tree damage from a storm, our Denver West team is Here to Help. ® We offer a full range of storm damage restoration services when needed to return your property to pre-damage condition. Call us today at 303-576-6868.

Outdoor Propane Heater Safety Guidelines for Aurora Businesses?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

An outdoor propane heat lamp is shown. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in the Denver area.

Businesses use propane patio heaters so people can spend more time outdoors on chilly days in Aurora. Our team in Denver West offers this information from the National Fire Protection Association for outdoor propane heaters safety:

Propane Patio Heaters

Propane heaters need to be used in accordance with their listing and manufacturer instructions. Prior to using a propane heater, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for information such as the following:

  • Necessary clearances from the heating element
  • Proper ventilation required
  • Proper inspection, cleaning, and maintenance procedures
  • Lighting and shutdown procedures
  • Where the heater can and cannot be used (for example, heaters cannot be used in enclosed locations)
  • Procedures for properly storing heaters

The restrictions for using propane heaters are also based on the occupancy in which they are used. For example, in assembly occupancies, such as restaurants with fifty or more occupants, heaters cannot be located within five ft (1.5 m) of the exits. Regardless of where they are used, if a heater uses propane hoses, they must be as short as possible, visible, and protected from damage.

For patio heaters that use integral LP-Gas containers with a capacity greater than 1.08 lb (0.49 kg), NFPA 1 requires that the heaters be listed by an organization acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).

A fast response is necessary to avoid further damage and more time-consuming repairs when you have fire damage. Our Denver West team typically arrives onsite within four hours of your call. Call us today at 303-576-6868.

High Winds Knock Power Out in Denver?

Deep snow covers carsElectric meter shown in Denver. We are a trusted storm damage restoration team in Denver.

Our team in Denver West has been restoring storm damage in the Denver area for many years. Last December, more than 57,000 customers in the metro Denver area were without power when strong winds of 90 miles-per-hour blew through the Front Range. You never know when a storm will knock out your electricity, so here are some tips for preparing for a power outage from the American Red Cross:

Create a support network. Identify people who can help you stay at home or evacuate during an extended power outage. Keep a paper copy of your contact list.

Stay connected and alert. Sign up for alert systems and apps for text alerts. Have communication devices that work without home power, including a crank or battery radio, a non-cordless home phone, chargers/batteries for your cell phones and your computers.

Stock food and water. Store non-perishable food and water supplies for at least two weeks. Plan to use coolers and ice to extend food refrigeration and keep a thermometer in the fridge, freezer, or cooler to monitor the food temperature.

Know and plan for your personal and medical electrical needs. Take an inventory of your electrical needs. Consider backup and non-power alternatives for lighting, communication, medical devices, refrigerated medicine, cooking, garage doors, locks, and elevators. Discuss a plan with your doctors for your medical needs.

  • Keep refrigerators and freezers closed in the event of a power outage. If your power is out for more than four hours, discard perishable food like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and leftovers.
  • Create an emergency supply kit for your car. Include jumper cables, sand, a flashlight, warm clothes, blankets, bottled water, and non-perishable snacks. Keep the gas tank full.
  • Stay off roads, and stay indoors, if possible. If trapped in your car, stay inside.
  • Listen for emergency information and alerts.
  • Limit your time outside. If you need to go outside, wear layers of warm clothing.
  • Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Only use generators and grills outdoors and away from windows. Never heat your home with a gas stovetop or oven.

Our local team in Denver West responds to fire damage emergencies every year and offer these carbon monoxide safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes, or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the house.
  • Call your local fire department’s non-emergency number to find out what number to call if the CO alarm sounds
  • If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel declare that it is safe to re-enter the home.

A view of buildings in Denver. We offer commercial cleaning services in Downtown Denver.

Ice Dam Damage in Denver?

3/8/2022 (Permalink)

Icicles hang from a roof. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver.

Ice dams are common during the winter months in Denver. SERVPRO® of Denver West offers these tips for preventing roof ice dams from the National Weather Service:

  • If you haven’t already, thoroughly clean all leaves, sticks, and other debris from your home’s gutters and downspouts. This allows melting snow to flow into gutters and downspouts.
  • Make every effort to keep snow on your roof to a minimum. Long-handled devices on the market called “roof rakes” let you stand on the ground and pull the snow off the roof. Keeping heavy snow loads off your roof reduces the chances of ice dam formation and roof failure due to the weight.
  • All winter long, keep gutters and downspouts clear of snow and icicles.
  • Evaluate the insulation and ventilation in your attic. Most experts agree that the T=R-value of the attic insulation should be at least R-30 (R-38 is preferable in northern climates). In addition, good airflow under the eaves or soffit area along the underside of the roof and out through the vents is essential. The venting allows the attic air to stay cold enough to prevent or minimize the freeze/thaw cycle on the roof.

Frozen Pipes in Aurora?

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

An insulated pipe is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver.

Overnight temperatures drop below freezing in March. SERVPRO® of Denver West offers these cold weather tips from the Denver Water website to prevent frozen pipes:

Know the location of your water shut-off valve and test it regularly.

If a pipe breaks, you won't want to have to find it then or, worse, wait for someone to arrive at your place to find it for you. In most single-family homes, the shut-off valve is in the basement or the crawl space on a wall facing the street.

Turn off outdoor faucets, and be sure to disconnect hoses from them.

Ensure the faucet and the outside portion of the pipes are fully drained. A valve inside many houses will shut off the water's flow; then open and close the tap outside to release any water in the pipe. Disconnect the hose to ensure that freeze-proof faucets will drain and to avoid damage to the hose from freezing water.

Winterize unheated or vacant buildings.

If your vacant building has a fire protection system, make sure there is no danger that the water servicing this system might freeze.

Insulate water pipes that may be vulnerable to the cold or have caused problems before.

Pipes close to exterior walls or in unheated basements can be wrapped with pieces of insulation. Never put heat tape on the water meter to avoid damaging plastic components of the meter.

High Wind Warning for Denver?

2/8/2022 (Permalink)

A windy weather wind vane is filled with wind. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Denver.

Do you know what to do if there is a high wind warning in your area? SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year, and many of these involve wind damage. Here is some information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on the types of wind alerts they issue:

High Wind Warning: Take Action! Sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts are happening. Seek shelter. If you are driving, keep both hands on the wheel.

High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you’re not caught outside.

Wind Advisory: Take Action: Strong winds are occurring but are not so strong to warrant a High Wind Warning. Objects outdoors should be secured, and caution should be taken if driving.  

Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Take Action! A thunderstorm is happening or is imminent in the warning area. Severe thunderstorms have wind gusts of 58 miles per hour and/or hail one inch or larger. Seek shelter inside a sturdy building.

Preparing for High Winds

  • Remove any dead trees or overhanging branches near structures
  • Remove loose objects outdoors, on patios, roofs, or balconies that could blow away
  • Shutter windows securely and brace outside doors
  • Bring in unsecured objects from outside and secure objects that could blow away and cause damage or injury

Fireplace and Wood Stove Safety for Greenwood Village?

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

The door of a wood burning stove is open and wood is burning. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Denver.

Do you know that chimneys can catch on fire? SERVPRO® of Denver West offers these tips for Greenwood Village from Federal Emergency Management Agency for preventing creosote buildup that can cause chimney fires:

Limited air supply and unseasoned wood encourage the buildup of creosote. To avoid that buildup, do not restrict the air supply by:

  • Closing the glass doors
  • Not opening the damper wide enough
  • The longer the smoke is in the flue, the more likely it is that creosote will form
  • By closing down the stove damper or air inlets on a wood stove too soon or too much
  • Do not burn unseasoned wood
  • In the case of wood stoves, overloading the firebox with wood in an attempt to get a longer burn time also contributes to creosote buildup

Fireplace and Woodstove Safety

  • Keep a glass or metal screen in front of the fireplace to prevent embers or sparks from jumping out
  • Do not burn paper in your fireplace or woodstove
  • Put ashes in a metal container with a lid, outside, at least three feet from your home
  • Put the fire out before you go to sleep or leave your home

Plastic storage bins are shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Denver.

For many years, SERVPRO® of Denver West has been restoring water damage for Parker residents and business owners. Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute to protect your possessions from water damage:

  • Store off-season and other bulk belongings in waterproof bins, especially in areas where there are plumbing pipes or that are prone to dampness, such as basements and attics.
  • Never store valuables or memorabilia where there is a risk of destruction from water. Water and dampness also bring with it the threat of mold damage.
  • Keep belongings stored on shelving off the floor in basements. In case of water seepage or sewer backup, they’re less likely to get damaged.
  • Keep an up-to-date home inventory. Having a comprehensive list of your possessions will save time, trouble, and stress in case of loss from water damage.

Water Leak in Cherry Creek?

A person is getting water from a refrigerator water dispenser. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, every time I got a glass of water from the refrigerator water dispenser, water from a cracked water supply line was pooling underneath.

The water damage caused by this hidden leak was so extensive that all my hardwood floors and subfloors had to be replaced.

Flooded Basement in Cherry Creek?

11/3/2021 (Permalink)

A converted basement in a beautiful home is shown. We clean and restore hoarding scenes in Denver.

SERVPRO® of Denver West has been restoring water damage in beautiful Cherry Creek for many years. Our fast emergency response time, equipment, and experience save our customers time and money in many cases. Here are some tips for protecting your basement from water seepage from the Insurance Information Institute:

Reseal your basement. 

Water in the basement is often caused by cracks in building foundations or floor slabs. If you notice water seepage after heavy rain when you’ve never had a problem, it may mean that your once-waterproof cement floors and basement walls have deteriorated. Painting vulnerable areas with water sealant can prevent seepage.

Make sure water drains away from the building. 

Seepage is exacerbated by soil that has settled in a way to make water flow toward the building. After a storm, and especially if the ground is already saturated, rainwater that flows towards the building goes down the outside of the foundation wall, potentially through any cracks.

Install a backwater valve. 

Though less common than other causes of basement water, sewer backups are messy. Learn more about your sewer responsibilities and install and maintain a backwater valve, which allows sewage to go out, but not come back in.

Hoarding Danger in Castle Rock?

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

Garbage, a mattress, and other household contents sit outside a house. We clean and restore hoarding scenes in Denver.

When my mother got out of the hospital, she wanted to return to her home in Castle Rock. I told her it would be elder abuse to let her go back to her home in its current state. My mother is a hoarder, and the house had become unlivable, and she became ill as a result. A friend told me to call SERVPRO® of Denver West, and I’m glad I did. They sent out a team to help us clear the house and clean and decontaminate it.

Hoarding causes health and fire risks. According to the National Fire Protection Association, hoarding increases fire risks because:

  • Cooking is unsafe if flammable items are close to the stove or oven
  • Heating units may be too close to things that can burn. They might also be placed on unstable surfaces. If a heater tips over into a pile, it can cause a fire.
  • Electrical wiring may be old or worn from the weight of piles. Pests could chew on wires. Damaged wires can start fires.
  • Open flames from smoking materials or candles in a home with excess clutter are very dangerous
  • Blocked pathways and exits may hinder escape from a fire

Call Us Today!

When you need help with a hoarding situation, SERVPRO® of Denver West has a team of restoration technicians on call 24-hours a day.

  • Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls

Halloween Fire Safety Tips for Parker Families?

Wishing Parker families a Happy Halloween!

Each year decorations are the first thing to ignite in about 800 reported home fires each year. SERVPRO® of Denver West offers these tips for Halloween safety from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • When choosing a costume, stay away from long trailing fabric
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume
  • Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.
  • Use a battery-operated candle or glow-stick in jack-o-lanterns. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when candles are lit. When lighting candles inside jack-o-lanterns, use long, fireplace-style matches or a utility lighter. Be sure to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn and far enough out of the way of trick-or-treaters, doorsteps, walkways, and yards.
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes
  • Make sure all smoke alarms in the home are working
  • Tell children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them. Be sure they know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches fire

Wildlife Encounters in Greenwood Village?

9/28/2021 (Permalink)

A racoon is standing in the backyard of a home. We are trusted leaders in property damage restoration in Arapahoe County!

As a resident of Greenwood Village, I know that the chances of having a wildlife encounter are good, but I never knew I would come home to a family of raccoons raiding my kitchen pantry! The little varmints came in through my dog door and made themselves at home. I backed out of the house and waited for them to leave on their own.

When I went back into the house, I was faced with a kitchen disaster. Everything in the pantry was turned over, boxes were torn open, and there was broken glass and debris all over the kitchen. That’s when I called SERVPRO® of Denver West. They arrived quickly and cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom and decontaminated and deodorized the entire area. Thank you, SERVPRO!

The Greenwood Village website offers these helpful tips about wildlife encounters:

  • Please do not feed wildlife
  • Discourage others from feeding wildlife
  • Do not touch young wild animals. An animal that appears orphaned will often have its mother nearby.
  • Teach children not to feed, play with, or pet wild animals
  • Secure trash containers to prevent wildlife access
  • If you encounter an aggressive wild animal such as a coyote or raccoon, please call 9-1-1

Animal arson in Aurora?

SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to many fire damage emergencies each year in Aurora, and sometimes the cause of the fire has been pet-related.

Here are some pet fire safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to keep your furry friends safe around a fire:

  • Keep pets away from stoves and countertops

Water Damage and Insurance Coverage in Aurora?

7/5/2021 (Permalink)

An insurance policy sits on a table. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services in Denver.

SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in Aurora, and we encourage homeowners and renters to become familiar with what their policy covers.  Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute to make sure you have the right kind of claim to protect against water damage:

Different types of water damage are insured by different types of policies.

Homeowners' and renters' insurance provides coverage for burst pipes, wind-driven rain, and damage resulting from ice dams on your roof. Generally speaking, water that comes from the top down—such as rainfall and burst sprinklers—is covered by a standard homeowners policy.

Some policies cover sewer and drain backups, but many do not; however, you can purchase a sewer backup rider for your homeowner's or renters' coverage.

Typically, any water that comes from the bottom up—such as an overflowing river—is covered by a separate flood insurance policy, which can be purchased from the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and from some private insurers. If you live in a flood-prone area, learn more about appropriate coverage.

Flooding in Cherry Creek?

6/14/2021 (Permalink)

A roadway in the Denver, Colorado area is shown flooded. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver.

Common Causes of Local Flooding in Denver

The City of Denver, Flood Protection Handbook  cites many reasons for local flooding. SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to flood and storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Cherry Creek, and we know that our fast response time is key to minimizing further damage. Here are some common local causes of flooding from the City of Denver handbook

  • Heavy rains
  • Summer storms
  • Winter snowmelt
  • Overflowing river channels, creeks, and gulches
  • Storm sewers

According to the handbook, flooding can be aggravated by debris blocking the waterway. Hail has also been known to clog storm drains and sewer inlets. Urban developments cause less water to soak into the ground and interrupt the natural flow of water to waterways, causing the draining systems to be overloaded.

Here are some safety tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), on things you can do to prepare for a flood:

Know Your Risk for Floods
Visit FEMA's Flood Map Service Center to know the types of flood risk in your area.  Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.

Sump Pump Failure in Centennial?

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

Water is being pumped out of a flooded area. We provide emergency water damage restoration services in the Denver area.

Sump Pump Inspection Tips for Centennial

According to a study published by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), power outages were the cause of 18 percent of water damage incidents involving a sump pump. Clogged inlet screens and faulty float switches accounted for another 40 percent of sump pump failure incidents. SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in the Centennial area, and we mitigate many instances of flooding caused by sump pump failure.

The IBHS recommends following the manufacturer’s recommendations for sump pump maintenance. To inspect the sump pump:

  • Open the lid and remove debris that may be clogging the water inlet screen
  • Pour approximately five gallons of water into the pump and watch the float valve rise
  • As the float valve rises, the pump should turn on and discharge the water through the outlet pipe
  • Go outside and inspect the outlet pipe
  • Water should be flowing from the pipe away from the home

You might also consider installing a battery backup system with a battery replacement warning and replace the batteries every two to three years.

Cooking With Oil

At SERVPRO® of Denver West, we respond to fire damage emergencies of all kinds in the Englewood area and many of them started in the kitchen. Here are some safety tips for cooking with oil from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop

  • Heat the oil slowly to the temperature you need for frying or sautéing
  • Add food gently to the pot or pan so the oil does not splatter
  • Always cook with a lid beside your pan. If you have a fire, slide the lid over the pan and turn off the burner. Do not remove the cover because the fire could start again. Let the pan cool for a long time. Never throw water on the fire
  • If the fire does not go out or you don’t feel comfortable sliding a lid over the pan, get everyone out of your home. Call the fire department from outside

Snow Dam Fixes for Cherry Creek?

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

A man is shoveling snow off of his roof on a sunny day. We are leaders in water damage mitigation in Denver.

Denver Ice Dam Fix?

An article published in the Denver Post discusses ways to stop leaks from ice dams on roofs. The article describes the many conditions that encourage ice dams to form and some cures. Basically, ice dams form when roof temperatures fluctuate between freezing and above freezing on a roof. The frozen area prevents the unfrozen water from draining, and this causes standing water to seep underneath the roofing materials and cause water damage.

SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to water damage emergencies often in Cherry Creek and other areas of Denver and offers these tips from the Denver Post article to cool down the roof and minimize the occurrence of ice dam formation:

  • Install insulation or more insulation in the attic floor and keep it out of the eaves and soffit vents.
  • Ventilate the attic by installing a ridge vent along the entire length of the roof’s ridge.
    • Install soffit vents on the soffit on each side of the house.

A crime scene technician is placing a yellow crime scene barrier tape around the perimeter of a crime scene area. Denver businesses rely on us to clean and restore crime scenes 24-hours a day.

Late Night Crime

Late one night in January, a man attempted to rob my Englewood convenience store. A review of the security camera footage showed the scene as it unfolded. The robber was pointing a gun at the clerk behind the counter and was caught off guard by a good Samaritan who came from the back of the store and tackled the robber. The gun went off, but the shot went wide, and the robber was quickly knocked to the ground and pinned down.

The Englewood Police Department came out and arrested the robber. They took statements from my store clerk and the good Samaritan and were through with the investigation in an hour. Blood and glass covered the floor, and a whole shelving unit was knocked over during the skirmish. I had to get the crime scene professionally cleaned before I could reopen the store.

SERVPRO® of Denver West was called, and they arrived quickly with the equipment and protective safety gear to mitigate the bloodborne pathogens and other bodily fluids. By the time they were through my store was safely decontaminated and I was back in business.

This is a picture of something you never want to see when you come into work on a Monday, but there it was, a gaping hole in my warehouse roof, and lots of water covering the floor. Evidently the roof experienced some damage during the last storm when high winds ripped off some shingles and compromised the roof’s integrity. With all the snow on the roof there was no way of telling that the damage had happened until the snow melted, and you know the rest of the story. . .

Thankfully, I had used SERVPRO® of Denver West in the past and called them right away. They responded quickly and immediately tarped and secured the roof to minimize further damage and extracted the water from the floor. Once the room was completely dry, they repaired the roof and repainted the ceiling. Our employees were able to work in a safe, dry environment, and in just a few days, the repair was complete, and my warehouse was returned to preloss condition.

The Worst Storm in Colorado History

The metro area was completely blocked, and hundreds of motorists had to be rescued. The Denver International Airport canceled many flights and affected many people’s Christmas plans across the country.

Water has seeped into the basement of a structure. We clean and restore water intrusion damage in Denver!

Water intrusion prevention tips.

Water intrusion is the unwanted movement of water and water vapor into a structure. SERVPRO® of Denver West witnesses firsthand the damage that water can do to a home or commercial business in Englewood and we have a team of water restoration technicians on call 24 hours a day to mitigate water damage jobs of all kinds and sizes.

Water damage is one of the most expensive types of damage a structure can experience, but there are many things that can be done to prevent this from occurring. Here are some tips for preventing water intrusion from the University of San Diego:

  • Ensure windows of buildings can close and seal to prevent rainwater intrusion or the potential for condensation from outdoor humidity levels.
  • Identify and quickly fix roof leaks, window leaks, or door leaks.
  • Reseal roofs, flashing and ensure proper distance of fascia to reduce water penetration to the building façade.
  • Keep rain gutters and floor drains clear of debris to prevent water backup and flooding.
  • Immediately fix leaky plumbing fixtures and clogged toilets or drains.
